Giving Skeptics Reason to be Skeptical: Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. New Super Trailer.

The latest trailer is awesome in my opinion: http://www.expelledthemovie.com/playground.php (Opens in New Window.)

Some introductory Remarks

Welcome to my Christian Apologetics page. This site is a long time in coming and is born of many debates- both online and off. I personally nearly abandoned the Christian faith in college. For all I know, I did. God only knows. I did this deliberately. That is, disillusioned by my unanswered questions, I decided to forget all that I thought I knew and rebuild.

The process of that rebuilding has made me what I am today, for better or for worse. Many skeptics have decided to challenge the authenticity of my experience. I’m not entirely sure why that is. … continue reading...
